Exercise equipment: Parkes Shire residents will soon be able to access state-of the-art exercise equipment for free with the construction of a new outdoor multi-station gym underway at Kelly Reserve and walking paths at Bushmans Hill. Mayor Ken Keith said: “Bushmans Hill and Kelly Reserve were identified by the community as popular recreation locations. This project will enable residents to better utilise these spaces for health and fitness pursuits.” Parkes Shire Council successfully secured $50,000 for the project from the Department of Family and Community
Services. The project will further enhance and support the existing facilities at the two locations. Construction started last week, with work on the new pathways set to begin in the coming months.
